Still time to catch end-of-month drawings

Sep 24, 2002 6:20 AM

   As September comes to a close, many of the month-long drawing promotions are wrapping up their final drawings this week and next. Here’s a rundown of some of the most popular drawings this month with a chance for you to still enter and possibly win some great prizes!

   Suncoast: Completes their “$500,000 Great Cruise Giveaway” with daily drawings through Sept. 30. There’s still time this week to win a seven night cruise to Alaska or the Caribbean by hitting designated jackpots and earning tickets for the 2, 6 and 10 p.m. daily drawings ending next Tuesday.

   El Cortez: The “$15,000 Strike it Rich” promotion ends on Sept. 30. Jackie’s Club members get one drawing ticket for each 1,000 points they earn. There is no limit on the number of tickets each person can have in the drum. On Sept. 30, the big giveaway drawings take place at 8 p.m. The first 15 names will be drawn to receive a prize gift (high end items, like stereos, televisions, bread makers, and more.) Those winners will be re-entered into the cash drawings too! An additional 15 people will each win a $1,000 cash prize. Winner does not need to be present for the prize gifts, but must be present to win the cash. They will continue to draw names for the cash prizes until they have 15 winners present.

   A convertible T-Bird is still up for grabs at Mandalay Bay and will be given away at 5 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 30. Drawing tickets are earned through casino play as well as dining in specific restaurants and participating in selected hotel activities. The winner will have 14 days to claim the car in person, but if present for the drawing will receive an extra $5,000 in cash. Winner’s name will also be posted on the casino’s website.

   You have a little extra time to win the Harley Davidson motorcycle at the Sahara. Tickets for the drawing are earned through casino play and the winning name will be drawn on Friday, Oct. 4, at 6 p.m. The lucky winner’s name will be immediately posted at the Club Sahara booth and the following day on:

   There is also a little extra time to get in on Arizona Charlie’s WEST “Highway to Riches” promotional drawings. Drawings are held every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. wrapping up on Oct. 16. The giveaways include a chance to win cars, trucks and cash, and drawing tickets are earned through casino play, including bingo, slots, table games, race and sports and even by dining in the Sourdough Café. Remember, these drawings are at the WEST location only, while EAST continues the “Bonus Pay Zone” (paying double on select four-of-a-kinds,) through the end of September.
